Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Warm and ripe red with lots of blackberry and cedary oak character. Full-bodied and very thick, yet refined and silky. Should turn out fabulously. Another super wine from Casanova. 5,025 cases made.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova, from newer vineyards near Castelnuovo dell-Abate in the southern part of Montalcino, is sweet, spicy, and weighty on the nose, with the aromas given additional push and penetration from the alcohol. The important volume and length, the solidity of the structure, and dense, liquorice-laden finish are those of a wine destined for long life.

Good, lively crimson. Strong mulch character ? very appetising. Relatively delicate for a Brunello, but very good balance. Fine tannins.

WOW! Fantastic nose, spiced berries, leather, vanilla. Very heady. Bottle was left for 3 hours to breathe. Super smooth on the palate, rich and spicey, chocolate, smoke, warm winter berries. The dryness of the wine comes though at the end and does stunt the finish, only by a tiny amount though. Accompanied home made lasagne, salad, and ciabatta. THis wine truley is world class and drinking beautifully now

Warm and ripe red with lots of blackberry and cedary oak character. Full-bodied and very thick, yet refined and silky. Should turn out fabulously. Another super wine from Casanova. Best after 2007. 5,025 cases made. -JS

About This Producer


The Casanova di Neri farm began in 1971 when Giovanni Neri bought a large estate within the territory of Montalcino. Over the years their continuing goal has been the search for and purchasing of land which they believe to be optimal for growing high quality grapes. The result is that today they have about 36 hectares of vineyards divided between four quite distinct areas: il Pietradonice in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, le Cetine in Sant'Angelo in Colle, il Cerretalto and il Fiesole near the farmhouse of the same name facing Montalcino.

Recent accolades include a perfect WS 100-point score for the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto and WS Wine of the Year honors for the 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova.

Wine Varietal: Sangiovese


Italyâ??s most popular grape, Sangiovese is the top grape used in Tuscany including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many of Italyâ??s â??Super Tuscans.â?? At least 14 clones of Sangiovese exist which are grouped into the Sangiovese grosso and Sangiovese piccolo families. Sangiovese thrives in a warm climate and consists of over 10% of Italyâ??s vineyard acreage (covering almost a quarter million acres). Over the past decade Sangiovese has become increasingly popular and successful in California as well. Typical descriptors for Sangiovese include candied or dried cherry, citrus, leather, violets and tea.
